Story from Fox News.
Adult film actress Stormy Daniels has been ordered to pay President Trump $292,000, as reimbursement for 75% of his legal fees in the fight against her defamation lawsuit against him.
“The U.S. District Court today ordered Stormy Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford) to pay President Trump $292,052.33 to reimburse his attorneys’ fees (75% of his total legal bill), plus an additional $1,000 in sanctions to punish Daniels for having filed a meritless lawsuit against the President designed to chill his free speech rights,” stated Trump’s legal counsel, Charles J. Harder.
Harder also said, “The court’s order, along with the court’s prior order dismissing Stormy Daniels’ defamation case against the President, together constitute a total victory for the President, and a total defeat for Stormy Daniels in this case.”
Stormy Daniel’s lawyer Michael Avenatti responded in a tweet,
Trump and his attorney’s attempt to fool the public about the importance of the attorneys’ fees in the defamation case, which are a fraction of what they owe my client in the main NDA case, is an absolute joke. People are smarter than that.https://t.co/oo3kkjVzPU via @YouTube
